    Looks like a silver laced wyandotte to me. What type of comb does she have, and does she have feathered feet?

    Good quality cochins are yes. Hatchery - no. Bantams are more common than standard cochins.

    They definitely aren't rare around here.

    Farm stores order from a hatchery. Here is a picture difference between a show quality (bred by a breeder) and a hatchery quality (bred by a hatchery) [​IMG] Show Quality bantam cochin (black) [​IMG] Ideal Hatchery pullet I raise Standard Cochins. They look a bit different than the bantams. [​IMG] Here is one of my standard cochin males - he is partridge.
